Systems Knowledge Brief: Market Systems Resilience
Sectors:Market Systems | Agriculture and Livelihoods
Mercy Corps has piloted measurement and analysis of market systems resilience (MSR), drawing on a framework developed by USAID, in four fragile and conflict affected contexts since 2020. This brief presents the key findings from each and overall reflections and recommendations from the experience. In particular, Mercy Corps advises combining measurements of market system resilience with measurements from the target population to differentiate between beneficial and exclusionary or negative forms of resilience among market actors.
